So we have a corrupt inode. The error tells me that the
corrupted inode is either a regular file, directory or link.
Unfortunately it doesn't tell us the inode number that is
corrupted.

Once the filesystem shuts down this will happen to every operation.

Next time you get a shutdown, can you unmount the filesystems and
run xfs_check and then "xfs_repair -n" on the filesystem. These will
tell you the inode numbers that are bad. Can you post the errors
reported by these tools?

Once you have the bad inode numbers, can you run the following
on the bad inodes:

# xfs_db -r -c "inode <inum>" -c "p" <device>

E.g.:

# xfs_db -r -c "inode 128" -c p /dev/sdb8
core.magic = 0x494e
core.mode = 040755
core.version = 2
core.format = 2 (extents)
......

and post the output for us? That will enable us to see exactly what
the corruption is on the inode.

Cheers,

Dave.
